Fibrelite and Trenwa’s partnership product: heavy duty precast concrete trenches topped with light strong composite covers.

Fibrelite says that since forming a partnership with concrete trench manufacturer Trenwa in 2014, the latter has sold well over a hundred of its precast trench systems integrating Fibrelite trench covers for use in electrical substations, wastewater treatment plants, chemical refineries and many other applications across North America.

Trenwa has worked with Fibrelite to design and manufacture custom molded composite trench covers to fit Trenwa’s existing line of precast multi-duty trench systems. These covers are engineered specifically for light vehicle traffic (12.5-tonne load rated) and pedestrian traffic (1.5-tonne load rated) respectively.

‘I am excited to see our partnership with Trenwa growing as their customer base continues to adopt our lightweight, corrosion resistant composite trench covers,’ said Jim Goodman, US key account manager, Fibrelite.
